Aston-upon-Trent, near Derby




I'm in the area on Saturday morning/lunchtime, so I'll give this a go. Not sure whether it's accessible but it's worth a try, as I've not hashed in the graticule before.


Unfortunately, no luck. A combination of factors were against me here:

  1. Got up an hour later than planned, leaving me with only 40 minutes to walk 1.5km and back from the car park to the hash point
  2. It was drizzling
  3. The chosen roadside walk was not pedestrian-friendly. In fact, it was more like an assault course with the added thrill of risking collision with lorries

The ultimate frustration was when I drove away, only to find myself a minute later driving up the very slip-road that took me about 100m from the hash. I actually thought about stopping and making a dash for it, but (a) that would be illegal and (b) there was a fence along the boundary anyway.

Oh well, can't win 'em all!
